Given the amount of information there is about losing weight on the internet, what better way than to turn to scientific studies to discover the truth
Most of us want to lose weight. But getting it makes us a mountain. What if you exercise, what if you have this for breakfast, what if the other dinner...? In the end, by following bad advice, we quit shortly after we decided to go on a diet.
What most of us ignore is that with a few simple adjustments we can lose weight quickly and effortlessly. We just need to have some patience and change our habits.
Here we tell you the nine best tricks that you should apply to lose weight, and all of them supported by scientific studies. Attentive:
1) eat more protein
When it comes to losing weight, protein is king. Your body burns more calories digesting and metabolizing the protein you eat, so a high-protein diet can speed up your metabolism by up to 80-100 calories per day, according to this study.
A high-protein diet can also make you feel fuller and reduce your appetite, according to some studies.
2) Avoid processed foods
We eat more processed than we are aware, as we already told you in Vozpópuli. These pseudo- foods are often high in sugars, fat, and calories.
Additionally, these products are designed to make you overeat and addicted to them, according to this study.
3) Keep only healthy things at home
The studies have shown that the food you have at home greatly affects your weight and you’re eating habits. That is why you should try to have only healthy foods on hand, so you will reduce your snack after hours as much as possible and let yourself be swept away by anxiety.
4) Limit your intake of added sugar
A serious problem with processed foods is the amount of added sugar they have. Even the 'healthiest' ones, like yogurts or sliced turkey.
Eating a lot of extra sugar is linked to heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and cancer. That is why you should always read the nutritional labels of what you buy and are going to eat.
5) drink more water
The water helps you lose weight. Drinking just a half liter a day can increase the calories you burn by 24-30% for an hour afterward, according to this study. In addition, the more water you drink, the more hydrated you will be and the less you will eat, by feeling more satisfied and by not confusing hunger with thirst.
6) Drink coffee (without sugar)
Drinking coffee can help you lose weight by increasing energy levels and the amount of calories burned, according to science. Additionally, caffeine can speed up your metabolism by 3–11%. You must drink it without sugar.
7) Take supplements with glucomannan
Glucomannan is a highly hydrating fiber. It is usually taken in pills and is low in calories. It helps you lose weight by slowing down the emptying of the stomach and reducing the absorption of fats, while feeding beneficial intestinal bacteria.
8) Avoid liquid calories
Although some juices are healthy, you should avoid them if you want to lose weight. And the same with all the liquid calories that come from drinks like sodas, milk shakes and energy drinks. The consumption of these liquids is related to obesity.
9) fast intermittently
Intermittent fasting is an eating pattern that alternates between periods of fasting and eating. It is followed by many celebrities, like Jennifer Aniston and Elsa Pataky, and it has been shown to help with weight loss.
Weight gain is a common side effect for people who take insulin a hormone that regulates the absorption of sugar (glucose) by cells. This can be frustrating because maintaining a healthy weight is an important part of your overall diabetes management plan. The good news is that it is possible to maintain your weight while taking insulin.
